Yamaha PM10 Is Not Your 'Woodstock' Analog Console
The Woodstock Music and Arts Fair took place almost 49 years ago, and times have certainly changed for the better as far as audio console technology is concerned. Currently out on GRAMMY™ and CMA award winner, Miranda Lambert's 24-city "Livin' Like Hippies Tour", the front of house and monitor engineers are carrying dual Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 Digital Audio Consoles provided by CLAIR Global.
"I have used many generations of Yamaha consoles – both analog and digital – mostly in one-off, festival, and install situations," states Todd Wines, front of house engineer. "However, I have never toured with a Yamaha console prior to this tour. Yamaha's dependability played a key role in my decision to use the RIVAGE PM10. I had stepped up to early versions of the console at festivals and was impressed. But after exploring the latest version and discussing options with Cam Beachley, Miranda's monitor engineer, and Scott ‘Scooter' Hernbeck of CLAIR Global, it seemed like a reasonable choice from sonic, tech, and collaborative standpoints."

Das moderne Mixer-Flaggschiff wurde in zahlreichen Bereichen, darunter in den Schlüsselelementen Klangqualität, Funktionsvielfalt, Betriebssicherheit und Erweiterbarkeit, nochmals entschieden verbessert. Es wird zukünftigen Mixer-Generationen als würdiger Träger des PM-Kürzels, das in der Livesound-Branche stets für echte Innovation stand, einmal mehr die Richtung angeben.
